Christmas is almost upon us and in keeping in the spirit of giving the Burdekin Shire Council is giving community groups the opportunity to raise funds.
Community Development Manager Tony Vaccaro said the Christmas Twilight Markets would be held at Watson’s Green, Home Hill, on Thursday, December 3 from 6pm-8pm and in the Burdekin Theatre Forecourt, Ayr, on Thursday December 10 and 17 from 6pm-8pm.
“We don’t intend for these markets to replicate current markets, but want to offer community organisations and clubs the opportunity to set up stalls to fundraise,” he said.
“There will be no cost to groups wanting to participate, unless they require public liability insurance.
“It also will be a great way to draw people to the town centres and support our local businesses during the lead up to Christmas.
“We have sent invitations to schools, kindergartens, community groups and sporting clubs to provide them with more details about the markets.”
Organisations wanting to participate should contact Council’s Community Hub Coordinator Teresa Lever on 4783 9800.
